Valle Dell’Acate was founded at the end of the nineteenth century by Giuseppe Jacono, whose family had been involved in winemaking for as long as the town of Vittoria had been the principal export point for Sicilian wines to France. Today, the estate is run by Gaetana Jacono, the sixth generation of her family to be involved, and Francesco Ferreri, who is also the president of the Sicilian wine growers association, Assovi. There are 100 hectares of vines, most of which have been replanted since 2001, at between 0 and 250 metres above sea level. On the valley bed, the soil is light sandy clay, whereas on the plateau (at 250m), it is poor, calcareous soil. Tenuta Ibidini Insolia DOC Sicilia Bianco (100% Insolia) is vinified and aged it stainless steel. After it has been bottled, it is held back for 2 months before release. Tenuta Ibidini Nero d’Avola DOC Sicilia Rosso (100% Nero d’Avola) is vinified and aged as the Ibidini Insolia. Zagra DOC Sicilia Bianco is 100% Grillo, and is aged for 4 months in stainless

steel and 4 months in bottle before release. Zagra means orange blossom in Sicilian. Il Frappato DOC Vittoria Frappato (100% Frappato) is aged in stainless steel for 6 months. It may be served slightly chilled. Their flagship wine is Cerasuolo di Vittoria DOCG Classico; Classico signifies that the vines are at the centre of the appellation. A further requirement is that Cerasuolo DOCG Classico must be aged for 18 months, as against 8 months for the Cerasuolo DOCG. The blend is 60% Nero d’Avola and 40% Frappato. The wine is aged for 12 months, partly in stainless steel and partly in tonneaux. It then receives a further 9 months aging in bottle before release. Rusciano DOC Sicilia Syrah is 100% Syrah. It is vinified in stainless steel and, after a few months in tonneaux, aged for two or three years in bottle before release.
